Development of novel medical countermeasures against infectious disease
Identifying new drugs to treat resistant infections
Infectious diseases are a serious global health threat, particularly due to the increase in antimicrobial resistance, with new resistance mechanisms emerging rapidly and threatening our ability to treat infections. Our research aims to develop novel medical counter measures, including the use of natural products and inhibitors of virulence properties of pathogens that will supplement traditional treatment therapies. We are also involved with multiple projects aimed at improving implementation strategies for the prevention of disease, such as vaccination.
Microbiology and Immunology
Microbes are organisms too small to be seen without a microscope and Microbiology is the study of these organisms and the role they play in health and disease and the environment.
Pathology and Laboratory Medicine
With Pathology and Laboratory Medicine you can explore the causes and mechanisms of human disease.
Bachelor of Biomedical Science
The Bachelor of Biomedical Science encompasses the biological basis of human structure and function and the application of this knowledge to disease, wellbeing and society.
Doctor of Philosophy
The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) is the University's flagship research degree, which can be taken in any discipline area in the University.
